Thinkwell Institute Samya Rose Stumo Memorial Fellowship For Global Health.

Young women play a foundational role in helping sustain the health and well-being of our communities, however they are often not given opportunities to activate change. The Samya Rose Stumo Fellowship for Global Health fosters a global community of young women to inspire their vision, develop their skills, incubate their ideas, and elevate their voices to become the change makers of tomorrow.

The fellowship seeks to identify and nurture young women from across the globe to co-create transformative global health projects with ThinkWell. Selected fellows will be part of a 12-month inaugural cohort designed to bring their interests and ideas to life. Fellows will work with ThinkWell experts and have access to cutting- edge resources to co-create a project idea in health systems, health advocacy, health policy, or health entrepreneurship.

Leading global health experts from ThinkWell will serve as a mentor to each fellow, directing them through the entrepreneurial process and providing critical feedback along the way. Fellows will write a summary of their learnings and findings and give a presentation after 12 months. We understand that fellows will be at varying stages of development in their area of interest, and we are committed to curate and facilitate experiences designed to bring value to each fellow. While fellows are primarily responsible for individual projects, we encourage cross-collaboration and exchange of ideas.

Requirements

Thinkwell seek applications from outstandingly bright, motivated, and driven women with a burgeoning interest to explore a concept in global health. These women should be self starters,have demonstrated leadership in their communities, and have a commitment to challenge the status quo. Women should be in or have recently completed a master’s degree or higher. Initially, the fellowship will accept promising women applicants from Kenya, Indonesia,Bangladesh, and the Philippines.

International Women’s Forum (IWF) Leadership Foundation’s Fellows Program For Women Leaders Worldwide.

International Women’s Forum (IWF) Leadership Foundation’s Fellows Program For Women Leaders Worldwide.

Each year, IWF invests in making women stronger, smarter and more influential through its Fellows Program, a year-long, intensive leadership development experience. The Fellows Program was launched in 1994 with seed-funding from the U.S. Labor Department as a direct result of the Glass Ceiling Commission and annually convenes approximately 35 Fellows from around the world for a total of 20 days. Featuring academic partnerships with Harvard Business School and INSEAD, the program offers customized leadership training for high-achieving women leaders on their path to the C-suite. The approach is holistic and focused on the participant’s personal and professional development, career path, and trajectory, while embracing the value of an outside perspective.

IWF organizes programming and professional development opportunities to share knowledge and discuss solutions on current
business challenges, diversity, gender equality and other global topics.
• IWF believe that the intractable challenges we face can only be solved if women attain their equal place and status – if
women share their diverse perspectives, contribute different styles of leadership and present new solutions only they can
develop.
• IWF believe the potential for women is unlimited and opportunities should be, as well.
• IWF believe an investment in women is an investment in the future.
• IWF believe in transferring knowledge and momentum to the leaders of tomorrow to improve our world – to energize,
demand and accelerate the imperative of change

Requirements

Each year, IWF selects a geographically, culturally, ethnically and professionally diverse group of women. IWF seeks candidates that demonstrate the following:
• Considered change agents within their organization and community
• Possess the ambition to push to the highest levels of their career and the desire to lift as they rise with regard to legacy and mentoring
• Substantive professional/work experience and significant direct accomplishments
• Strength of character, motivation and commitment to goals
• Superior intellectual ability, as evidenced by academic history and distinctions, and recommendations
• Have the capacity to both contribute to and gain from the Fellows Program
• Intention to participate fully in all activities and training components associated with the Fellows Program, as well as a commitment to the Legacy Project

Structure
The program convenes approximately 35 Fellows from around the world for a total of 20 days, comprised of three separate sessions. It is executed in partnership with INSEAD and Harvard Business School. The Fellows Program offers creative, multidisciplinary training aimed at developing leadership and strategic management capabilities.

Mentoring
In addition to leadership training, Fellows are matched with an IWF member who serves as a mentor during the program year. Through the mentoring experience, participants gather personal insights and advice from women at the top of their field. Fellows also take part in IWF’s annual World Leadership Conference, which brings together 850+ women executives
from more than 40 nations.

Legacy Projects
To amplify the impact of the program, Fellows are responsible for implementing a Legacy Project that applies the skills learned in a relevant way. Previous Legacy Projects include: a career conference series aimed at female university students in Mexico, a breakfast roundtable for women in the U.S. military in Washington, D.C., and mentoring circles to foster a pipeline of women leaders in the aviation industry.
